New Jersey Assembly takes up inequities in prenatal care

AP/Philadelphia Inquirer, January 12, 2009

Backed by a state Department of Health and Senior Services study highlighting serious disparities among the quality of care for women with unplanned pregnancies, New Jersey Assemblywoman Sheila Oliver, D-East Orange, is among those seeking ways to improve the inequities during a legislative hearing. During the session, Health and Senior Services Commissioner Heather Howard is slated to talk about the state's prenatal care awareness campaign. And Oliver is sponsoring a bill that addresses the need for continuation of obstetric services if a clinic closes or reduces its hours.
